Reheating the primordial soup helps scientists stack the building blocks of life

To study how life might have originally emerged on Earth, researchers have found that drying out ...

One of the biggest biological mysteries is how life originally sparked out of non-living molecules. The answer likely lies in the Primordial Soup, a mineral-rich mixture that was lapping against the shorelines on early Earth, but there's still a big question mark hovering over just how these molecules managed to link up to form life-giving proteins. To find out, researchers at Georgia Tech have recreated some of the conditions common to a pre-life Earth, and discovered that drying and rewetting this primordial soup lets these key peptides form quickly and relatively easily.
